For the outlet survey, a drug audit collected information on all antimalarials found at the time of the interview (including information on brand and generic names, dose, manufacturer, amount sold in the last seven days, and retail price) and a similar Rapid Diagnostic Test audit was performed. The provider questionnaire collected information on provider demographics, antimalarial treatment knowledge, antimalarial storage conditions, stock-outs, and licensing.
For the household survey, caregivers responded to a series of questions about management of fevers that had occurred among children in their care in the two weeks preceding the survey (particularly the type, timing, source and cost of treatments acquired for the child’ s fever); except in Cambodia where fevers in all age-groups were surveyed. A household questionnaire module, modeled after the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), collected information on housing characteristics and household assets to be used in assessment of relative socioeconomic status.
Questionnaires are presented to provide an overview of the indicators collected. The questionnaires contain the full survey used by interviewers in the field (presented in English or French as appropriate to the country context). A few country examples are presented here to give an idea of what these documents contain.
Outlet surveys: a contraceptive commodity audit records information on all modern FP methods found at the time of the interview (including information on brand and generic names, manufacturer, country of manufacturer, formulation/strength, and retail price).
Provider interviews: the provider interview captures the number of services performed, price, provider credentials, and the availability of a minimum set of essential equipment.
